Game of Lies.
You had me thinking I was living in a world I had been in before. Every twinkle of your eyes retold the story, every movement of your lips reminded me of the past words, every movement you made and every step you calculated felt like an equation that I had encountered before. It had been clear and it had been easy and so I fell. I fell so deep and so strong that I never thought I would let go, or at least,got me praying never to get to that road. It was easy to dive in, and I dived too deep. I had me lost in the process.
I spent each second treasuring your presence, breathing in the air you breathe out, moving on the track marks you left behind and following your shadows. I had always wanted to be you, and you to be me. Together live a dream.
And so I was busy nursing your wounds, preventing the oozing blood from your cut veins from flowing, I had been too busy plastering your fractures that I dint notice my own heart was cut, torn, bleeding and almost getting crushed to nothing.
I had held on stronger to you than I did to my own will to live... I had prayed you never leave even in my wildest dreams... I had wanted to live in you and you in me. I had wanted you, I had wanted you all. But only for me.
And so I kept convincing myself that you made me, without you I'll break apart. Trying to hold together my breaking broken heart. Reassuring myself its never greener on the other side, afraid of burning the bridges from the outside. Dear lord, I was so dark and empty inside!! But a journey of a million miles always starts with a step, and the harder it was the easier it became. For the further I walked the closer I got, and when the tougher it got the softer it became. And so when the rainbow came and the light shone at the end of the tunnel, I realized I was living an illusion; a game of lies. And only within me was the strength I needed. Allowed you to live in the pleasure of my pain, gave you the keys to my happiness.Got you convinced you reign.All that was a game of lies
